When I visited Monica’s music class for toddlers, I was immediately drawn in to infectious enthusiasm, wonderful smile and well thought out progressive approach for little people. I have seen literally thousands of teachers in action. It was immediately clear to me that Monica is no ordinary teacher – she blends her depth of knowledge with her genuine enthusiasm to spark a love of music in people, and little children in particular. I highly recommend Monica as a brilliant teacher and a delightful person wrapped into one dynamic lady!

We love our music classes for so many reasons! Firstly and most importantly, it is an opportunity for us to bond, to be present and focused on an activity together, without the distractions of our busy day-to-day lives. It fosters creativity, interaction, freedom of expression at the same time that it encourages children to be disciplined, wait their turn and share. The songs we play and the activities we do during the class have now become part of our play time at home too! We speak Portuguese and English at home and most of my son's interactions with the Portuguese language are with me. Music & Giggles gives him another reference point from a language perspective, it exposes him to different vocabulary and it gives him the opportunity to develop relationships with other children who also speak Portuguese.
My 8 months old bubba Lily loves Music&Giggles and teacher Monica! She was only 3 months old when I took her to the class first time and I can definitely see the benefits of being introduced to music and musical instruments that early. She enjoys every second of the classes and I’m amazed by the way she engages with the classmates and teacher! I strongly recommend Music&Giggles to babies and toddlers! Lily is number one fan!
My daughter Rebeca started cello at the age of five with Monica. She is a teacher who teaches with the heart. She loves what she does! I have no words to thank her for having captivated Rebeca in a playful and creative way. Always with a smile and word of encouragement. Thank you very much dear teacher for everything!
Monica's classes are full of knowledge, fun and character but what I most enjoy is the bonding I can improve with my 2,5 year old son during her classes and after as we keep singing and playing what we learned at home or anywhere. Great experience and definitely worth the investment.
